The final shot bounces off the penultimate orange peg, missing the last one hopelessly, but hitting the life-saving Free Ball Bucket. But no - it’s hit the rim. It’s not going in.
It’s bounced back out - toward the final peg. A drum roll starts, the camera zooms in on the critical moment, and everything plays out in slow-mo. It hits, it explodes, opera music blares. The ball ignites with a rainbow-colored vapor trail. The remaining pegs are wiped. The words “EXTREME FEVER” are meaninglessly plastered across the screen. The ball dives into the 100,000 point hole, which erupts in a volcano of green stars. We are amazing. To level 2!
